I usually attempt to keep at least half my weight on the front wheel for stability when cornering and braking.
However, with all the ice this winter, I discovered that front tire slips are quite ordinary. Thus, I find it beneficial to keep my weight back, maybe only 20% on front wheel, and stay ready to dab in the event of front tire slip.
Is this reasonable behaviour on ice or am I being too scared and actually decreasing my stability by pulling back? Tires are Land Cruiser, saddle height is lower than typical XC to facilitate ... falling from not so high.
